Providing hope is, perhaps, the best thing that we can do as physicians. I'm Jeff Karnes. I'm one of the urologic oncologists with a subspecialty interest in prostate and bladder cancer. To me, with all the newer improvements and imaging, even in what we call genomics or other aspects of medicine, there's truly not a one size fits all.

So I think there is a treatment plan that can be composed for each patient that may differ from the patient that seemingly on paper seemed like the same patient you saw 30 minutes ago. And I like to look at patients and how we treat them as to how I would like to be treated or how I'd like my own family members to be treated.
